  • Overview

    About 1 in 500 people have familial hypercholesterolemia (FH), the genetic disorder characterised by very high levels of low-density lipoprotein in the blood. Host Dr. Alan Brown talks to Dr. James Falko, professor of medicine in the division of endocrinology, metabolism and diabetes at the University of Colorado, Denver, about technology behind LDL apheresis to remove LDL cholesterol from blood. They cover the frequency of the procedure, possible complications, and what the data shows about the benefits of LDL apheresis in FH patients with refractory hypercholesterolemia. Dr. Falko also directs physicians to resources for locating LDL apheresis sites in the United States and Canada.
